New Cricket Selection Committee to be appointed next week



Sri Lanka Cricket announces that a new Cricket Selection Committee will be appointed on Monday.

Issuing a media release, the SLC said the new selectors will also name the Sri Lanka squad for the upcoming Pakistan series.

The previous selection committee submitted their resignation while the Indian team was in Sri Lanka.

However, quite astonishingly, even after announcing their resignation, the previous committee, named a primary squad for the Pakistan series.

Hiru Sports, spoke to few members of that committee, as it was unethical to name a squad after they have submitted their resignation.

Two of the former selectors revealed that they did not involve with naming the squad.

Then who had done so?

When we looked into this issue, it was found that a primary squad was named through the intervention of few top officials of the SLC.

It is found that the final squad with 15 players has already been finalized, but the officials are unable to announce it due to the unavailability of a selection committee.

The first Test between Sri Lanka and Pakistan to be played in the UAE is less than two weeks away.
